Inspired by her mother who loved to ride, Petronella grew up loving the world that was so important to her. She fell in love with horses when she was three, the first time she first rode one.
The adrenaline she felt while riding at full speed in her homeland, Sweden, led her to dream of competing and making that passion her life. Her love for healthy competition led her to compete in the first Swedish Championship when she was only 10 years old.
Her breakthrough came in 2013, when she joined the Stephex Stables and started competing in 5-star competitions. In her career she has learned never to give up, because this is the only way to make her dreams come true.
